Phottix have released the new Spartan collapsible beauty dish and octobox combination, available in 50cm (20″) and 70cm (28″) versions.
The Spartan feature a soft white lining, removable internal reflector disk, and include 2 fabric diffuser panels and egg crate grid.
Although collapsible, the Spartan require assembly like a traditional octobox, and are compatible with Photox’s range of speed rings available for most popular modifier mounts, including Bowen’s, Elinchrom, Balcar, and Profoto etc.
(Note – Speed rings are sold separately).
The Spartan include inner and outer fabric diffuser panels, so the internal reflector disk can be removed and replaced by diffuser panels to create a traditional octobox.
An egg crate grid is also supplied to narrow the light pattern and help control spill when needed.
As well as mounting directly to studio lights, the Spartan Beauty Dishes can also be mounted with speedlites using the new Phottix Cerberus speedlight mount, with Bowen’s or Elinchrom modifier mount attached.
The Cerberus feature a spring loaded clamp which quickly and easily clamps the flash head in place.
Phottix also have their own Varos Pro BG umbrellas swivel to mount the Cerberus bracket to a light stand.
And with the Bowen’s or Elinchrom mount removed, the Cerberus bracket can also be used directly with pop up softboxes like the Phottix Transfolder.
